Share your Instagram photos


It’s time for commencement at North Dakota State University. As you get ready to walk the stage, be sure to grab some pictures across campus to commemorate the occasion and remember all the hard work it took to get here.

To help capture your success and accomplishments, we’ve compiled a list of the best spots on campus to snap a photo on graduation day. We want the smiling faces of all our NDSU students and families to fill our Instagram feed, so be sure to tag us at @ndsu.official and use #NDSUGrad when posting.

Commencement ceremonies are scheduled for 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 11 at the Fargodome.

The gates on the corner of 12th Ave N. and University Drive welcome students during their first week of classes. They’re also a great spot to take photos when you’re getting ready to graduate from NDSU.
